“The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) filed an amicus brief today urging a federal court to find that the fair use doctrine shelters Google’s Book Search “snippet” project from copyright infringement claims from the Authors Guild. EFF was joined by three associations representing over 100,000 libraries, the Association of Research Libraries, the American Library Association, and the Association of College and Research Libraries.”
“The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has joined several national library associations in urging a federal court to find that the fair use doctrine permitted the creation of a valuable digital library.
EFF – “Every year we put together a birthday fund-raiser to commemorate another 365 days of fighting for your digital civil liberties. This year, we’re celebrating two decades of determined advocacy for freedom wherever bits are found, and the revelry will be unmatched by celebrations past!”
Congrats on 20 years!!
